The idea here would be to use the sme_get_limits() and possibly
sme_set_limits(). This is exactly the rationale behind those callbacks.
This would also result a nicer output in envstat(8).

I noticed the same thing with voltages. Yet, what is wrong with envstat(8)
or some other tool reporting "last full charge capacity is 123 % of the

flag, nothing more.
